You could use a decal or tape just to see how you like it for awhile.   Just try not to use anything with a strong adhesive, or leave it on for more than a few days.

What does it take to do a finish like this? Do i need like the whole spay gun that companies use or could i do it differently?

I'm not sure how other companies do it, but Warmoth did mine UNDER the finish.

It was a black stripe on a tangerine body, and the stripe was actually lower than the tangerine.

True, the cheap and dirty would be a rattle can with some wide masking tape. 

IIRC the proper way to do it is that the stripe color usually goes on first.  Next you tape off the "stripes", and then shoot the main color over the top.  When you peel the tape off it exposes the bottom color and makes for a nice clean line.
